Decision Day in Wisconsin

Wisconsin voters head to the polls today in a historic recall election that is expected to draw large numbers to the polls. Gov. Scott Walker (R) "remains the clear favorite" over challenger Tom Barrett (D), according to Nate Silver's latest read of public opinion surveys.

Polls close at 9 pm ET.

Meanwhile, Politico reports Wisconsin Democrats "say they are preparing for the event that the hotly contested recall race could drag on for weeks, or even longer."

"Floating the prospect of a recount is, of course, a message that bolsters the party's claims that the race is closer than people think and that it will go down to the wire -- despite polls showing Walker with the lead. Yet there's reason a recount can't be so easily dismissed."
